Funny story. I am tapering down my runs as I get closer to the big day but yesterday's was especially short!
My routine is as follows:
Get home, walk the dog, wash off the TV makeup, get into running gear, go outside to car (where I leave my MP3)-- lock car, put key fab in pocket-- take off.
I thought I did all of the above-- until about a half mile into the run when I realized I did not have my key! I panicked then BOOKED it back home, and low and behold-- there was my key fab sitting ONTOP of the car FREE for the taking.
I park out on the street-- in a city-- so I am lucky it was still there.
It was enough of a "run" for me-- Sprinting back the half mile-- wiped me out. I swear I was doing a 4 minute mile pace :)
I will go home tonight and attempt to run an easy 4 miles-- hopefully this one will be much less stressful.
By the way-- this week in Buffalo has been fan-super-tastic... sunny and 70's everyday-- the forecast for the race Sunday: a high of 71 and sunny. It should be around the mid 50's by takeoff at 7am.
Running Is So Much More Than Running
